As yet there’s still no movement from the Manton Bay Ospreys.

It’s not surprising that the juveniles have decided it’s not quite time to leave Rutland. This video, taken earlier today, shows the Manton Bay female feeding 9F, the juvenille female. Although both parents are still bringing fish in for the youngsters we wouldn’t expect her to actually be feeding the young birds.

Perhaps she got fed up with the constant food begging coming from 9F; if you’ve visited Waderscrape hide in the last few days you won’t have missed it!
